"John, I actually have your column on the Crab Walk from Flatpick Magazine. I sent the post after I went through it. It is a finger burner but a great exercise. I'm going to try it on my archtop and pretend it's easier. Thanks, Eric"

"Not sure. I've been trying to come up with a style for a newly ordered 000 12 fret from Blazer and Henkes. This may be a bit too pearly for me but it is sure pretty."

Eric:

How/why did you decide on Week 3? We are really going to miss you at Week One!

Why don't you make your way out to Wayne's festival this year. Third Saturday in June, rain or shine!

Yes, Eric the PE guitar is now officially the EW guitar. Congratulations

Howdy, Eric, Well, you can either be cool, like you. Or look cool, like me! :-) yes, Week 3 this year. Bob and I have to work the Canmore folk festival every year, so this dictates which week we have avail for PSGW. This year, it is week 3. For some unknown reason, is why Ed and Roy seem to want to share this week. You would think that with this advance knowledge, they would pick another week. :-)

Yep, I'll be there week 1.

Hi Eric,
Finally (!) I am getting around to responding to your comment re: the Crab Walk.
I learned this exercise from investigating the playing technique of the great Oregon guitarist, Ralph Towner. It was also the subject of one of my columns back in the Sept/Oct issue of 2002! I have an mp3 of the audio lesson that I would be happy to email to you. Just contact me at info@johncarlini.com and I'll send it. Perhaps you can find the column in the FPG archives. It is a great exercise and develops the ability to sustain notes while other notes are moving...meant to be played v-e-r-y s-l-o-w-l-y. Sorry to take so long to respond.
Best Wishes,
John Carlini

Easy Solution To a Common Acoustic/Electric String Problem

Found a solution to an often mentioned problem when having installed a piezo type bridge plate pickup transducer. The consensus of several Internet responders who have done this is that while the sound from strings 2 through 6 is good, the high e-string  is way too quiet with no real ring, sustain, etc. Some have suggested moving the transducer for that string away from a brace, Adding a 4th transducer, a not so easy job, etc.I recently installed a JJB pickup (jjbelectronics) in a 40 year old…See More

"Dan -- I ran out of time to say much but I want to thank you for your beginner's articles in FGM. I work them out fingerstyle on a nylon-string baritone ukulele."

FGM DGBE

I play two-thirds of a guitar. I have some wrist issues with fretting the 6th string. I enjoy finger picking but have been an avid follower of Flatpicking Guitar Magazine for about 6 years. I find Dan Huckabee's beginners arrangements great for the bari-uke. I have also found much of Adam Granger's work suits my DGBE tuning.I once took a class from Dan Miller in Palo Alto, California and he told me that his daughter was playing the baritone uke. I have e-mailed Adam about his new FGM…See More

Arthur Knowler replied to William Gray's discussion Heavy Picks Anyone?
"I have a left handed Blue Chip TAD 3R 40 pick and I find it a great pick to use, no scraping and quick on the strings. The only problem is that the tone is quite bass-y which is great for lead picking or Mandolin but not so good for rhythm…"
